Bayshore NY Dentist on Dental Implants

For most patients, the placement of dental implants involves two surgical procedures. First, implants are placed within your jawbone. In some cases, implants may be restored immediately after they are placed.

 

For the first three to six months following the surgery, dental implants are beneath the surface of the gums gradually bonding with the jawbone. You should be able to wear temporary dentures and eat a soft diet at this time. At the same time, your restorative dentist, Dr. Eugene Antenucci, designs the final bridgework or denture that will ultimately improve both function and aesthetics.

 

After the implant has bonded to the jawbone, the second phase begins. Dr. Antenucci will uncover the implants and attach a small healing collar. After two weeks your cosmetic dentist will be able to start making your new teeth. First, an impression must be taken. Then posts or attachments can be connected to the implants. The teeth replacements are then made over the posts or attachments. The entire procedure usually takes six to eight months. Most patients do not experience any disruption in their daily life.
